Wes Staucet was born and raised in the Albany area and he is the grandson of the late, great Albany Senator's short stop Frankie Staucet. Wes first picked up a clipper in college where he cut hair in his dorm room for extra money while attending Salve Regina University for his BA in Graphic Design. 


After graduating, Wes spent several years at the top of the sales/marketing field before rediscovering his love of art and acquired a NYS Master Barber license in 2011. Wes combines his passion for the art of barbering, his eye for design, and attention to detail in suit of perfection in every cut.


Wes is also a devoted husband to his wife, Melanie and father to their two sons, Gates and Hawk.
